goddess salad

I was born loving carbs, fats, dairy and sugar.
And then I grew up and married a man who really knows how to cook.
And I met some amazing friends who also really know how to cook.
And now I love things like asparagus and hummus and edamame.

And I also love salad. If it is any version of this salad.


Best Salad Ever Recipe

Mix together:
A bunch of Leafy Green Things (I prefer fresh spinach but I think most lettuces would work -except for iceberg. It only belongs on hamburgers.)

Sliced Red/Purple Onion

A bunch of Nut halves (Walnuts & Pecans are my top choices)

A good dose of Cheese - Any kind on hand : Feta, Colby Jack, Blue Cheese, Parmesan, Fresh Mozzarella

Some Fruit - Sliced Pears, Apples, Strawberries, Craisins

A Protein (if you feel like it) - Boiled Egg, Grilled Salmon, Grilled Chicken

And then coat it well with Annie's Goddess Dressing (or the wonderful homemade recipe below.)
Remember a pre-dressed & tossed salad is always so much yummier!!

This is Annie's Goddess Dressing.
It is amazingly yummy and changed at-home salad eating for me forever.
And even better than Annie's is Natalie & Alison's version that you can make at home:

goddess dressing

1 cup sunflower oil

¼ cup tahini

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

2-3 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon chives*

1 tablespoon parsley*

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup soy sauce

½ teaspoon kosher salt

juice of 1 lemon

place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.


try it - you will love it!
